 SEPIK RIVER
Bone Dagger 3
15.25" high
$200

Despite its appearance we believe this object was made to be sold.

This dagger is made out of a section of the large leg bone from a cassowary, a large flightless bird that lives in New Guinea. The dagger tapers to a point at one end. The top has been overmodelled with clay and embellished with cowrie shells, paint and fiber.
